Summary of Your Social News Feeds. Social Media Dashboard for Teams using Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin. @twitterstories. Basiscursus Twitter voor journalisten | webjournalisten.nl. Geplaatst op 30 juni 2011 door Bas de Vries. Toch wel bijzonder deze week: Twitter kwam met een ‘Twitter for Newsrooms’. Een soort basiscursus voor journalisten, enkele maanden nadat Facebook iets soortgelijks had gelanceerd. Nuttig? Ja, met name voor al die collega’s die nog niet (erg) actief zijn op Twitter of die de microblogdienst nog niet dagelijks gebruiken. Twitter study casts doubts on ministers' post-riots plan | UK news. Analysis of more than 2.5m Twitter messages relating to the riots in England has cast doubt on the rationale behind government proposals to ban people from social networks or shut down their websites in times of civil unrest.

A preliminary study of a database of riot-related tweets, compiled by the Guardian, appears to show Twitter was mainly used to react to riots and looting. Timing trends drawn from the data question the assumption that Twitter played a widespread role in inciting the violence in advance, an accusation also levelled at the rival social networks Facebook and BlackBerry Messenger. The unique database contains tweets about the riots sent throughout the disorder, which began in Tottenham, north London, on 6 August. It also reveals how extensively Twitter was used to co-ordinate a movement by citizens to clean the streets after the disorder. More than 206,000 tweets – 8% of the total – related to attempts to clean up the debris left by four nights of rioting and looting. Government backs down on plan to shut Twitter and Facebook in crises | Media.

The government has climbed down on plans to ban suspected rioters from using social networking websites in times of civil unrest. The home secretary, Theresa May, told social networks at a meeting on Thursday that the government had no intention of "restricting internet services". Research in Motion (RIM, the maker of BlackBerry), Facebook and Twitter were summoned to the meeting with May after David Cameron signalled a clampdown on the sites following the recent riots in England. The social networks were poised to face down the government on its plans, which they warned could usher in a new form of online censorship in the UK.

The Jekyll and Hyde problem: What are journalists, and their institutions, for? Jay Rosen, in his 1999 book What Are Journalists For? , shares a story which I think is of vital importance for those trying to understand the debate about “news gurus” kicked off this week by Dean Starkman in the Columbia Journalism Review. In his book discussing the long, strange career of an idea — the idea of “public journalism,” the notion journalism was better when it remembered its primary professional obligation was to public life — Rosen recounts the moment when the idea became (momentarily) corporate stunt. In 1995 the Gannett Company, then as now the largest US newspaper company as measured by circulation, took out a front page ad in Editor & Publisher, writing: “WE BELIEVE IN PUBLIC JOURNALISM — AND HAVE DONE IT FOR YEARS.” The ad went on to simultaneously praise and domesticate the public journalism movement, attempting to borrow, as Rosen puts it, the movement’s upstart legitimacy in service of some dubious corporate aims.
